Just no.  Those features should be in your phone, not in your watch.  Use the watch as an aux display for notifications akin to the Pebbl, but this - no.

this is a great concept and the designs are really nice. Keep it up. Don't mind the loud-mouth's  (Y) The basic design watch looks like something that's i'll get for myself or a family member, like the clean design :)

All the same, it would be very interesting to try.

the curve and classic look ok....

 

wouldn't use most of the things tho, but caller id might be nice instead of taking the phone out of my pocket

So basically like the total recall movie from last year when all they had to do is put their hand to their ear and talk?

You call me a loudmouth for voicing my opinion while you voice yours?

Where did I specifically say "Nik Louch is a loudmouth"?  :/ If you think I called you a loudmouth, by all means quote me making direct reference to you, otherwise nah uh.

Who else would it be directed at?  Seeing as he is the only one to reply before you made the comment.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but it seems like there's a pretty good response. They just raised 200k in less than 3 days.

 

Even if you don't like this iteration, it's certainly pushing smart watch tech further. As far as tech, the only other watch that compares is the Kreyos.. which is crazy thick.. I think it's 13mm. This one's much thinner.

I still don't see me doing those things on such a small screen, but apparently the world dissagrees :)
